So, for years I’ve been getting spam addressed to “Scott” to one of my email addresses, and I had no idea why. Today, I received an order confirmation from an online store where someone named Scott [surname withheld] has signed up using my email address. I think he’s used his real name and credit card, if so I have his address and his phone number.
What I’ve done so far is change the password in the store(I did that before I knew what was going on, after I got the signup email), and I’ve let customer support know that he’s signed up using someone else’s email address. I’m not sure where to go from here. He’s stored his credit card there, so technically I could buy him lots of stuff from that store… I’m not going to do that, though.
Now, what do I do about this? I’m assuming this guy has been doing this for years because of the spam thing. I don’t think he has the password to my email, but I’ve changed it just in case. I guess I could call him, but I would definitely not be comfortable doing that. Any other suggestions? I’m not sure this is the correct subreddit for this, if not I’d be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. Thanks!
